Global Healthcare REIT Reports Second Quarter 2015 Results

Q2 Rental Revenue Up 273% to $1.2 Million

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Aug 14, 2015) -  Global Healthcare REIT, Inc. (OTCQB: GBCS), a company that owns healthcare properties and leases them to senior care facility operators, reported results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2015.

Q2 2015 Highlights

  • Rental revenue increased 273% to $1.2 million versus the same year-ago quarter
  • Net loss to common stockholders improved to $0.1 million from a net loss to common stockholders of $0.2 in the same year-ago quarter.
  • Paid quarterly cash dividend of $0.01 in Q2, marking the company's fourth quarterly dividend.

Q2 2015 Financial Summary
Rental revenue increased 273% to $1.2 million in the second quarter of 2015, as compared to $0.3 million in the same year-ago quarter. The increase in revenue was due to the contribution of facilities acquired in 2014, with the number of facilities totaling 11 as of June 30, 2015 versus six at June 30, 2014.

Rental revenue in the second quarter of 2015 was derived from 10 out of 11 facilities in the company's portfolio, with the Southern Hills independent living facility currently undergoing renovations that are scheduled for completion by the end of the year.

Total expenses were $0.6 million in the second quarter of 2015, compared to $0.4 million in the same year-ago quarter. The increase in total expenses was due to increased depreciation expense due to the addition of properties to the company's portfolio in 2014, and related increased general and administrative expenses. As the company continues its acquisition campaign for healthcare real estate, it anticipates revenue and cash flow to increase while holding general and administrative costs relatively flat at approximately $205,000 per quarter, excluding costs related to the Tulsa independent living facility until the renovation is complete and an operator is in place.

Interest expense was $0.7 million in the second quarter of 2015, as compared to $0.1 million in the same year-ago quarter. The increase in interest expense is due to increased debt associated with new acquisitions. 

Net loss to common stockholders was $0.1 million or $(0.01) per basic and diluted share in the second quarter of 2015, as compared to net loss of $0.2 million or $(0.01) per diluted share in the same year-ago period. The improvement in net loss to common stockholders in the quarter was primarily due to increased revenues.

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $1.0 million as of June 30, 2015, as compared to $0.5 million as of December 31, 2014.

Funds from operations (FFO) was $282,000 or $0.01 per share in the second quarter of 2015 (see "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information," below for the definition of FFO, a non-GAAP financial metric, as well as an important discussion about the use of this metric). The company's dividend percentage of FFO was 78.70% in the second quarter of 2015. Given that the company first began to track and report FFO in the first quarter of 2015, there is no comparative year-ago period for FFO.

Subsequent to the end of the second quarter of 2015, Global signed a definitive purchase agreement to acquire a 112-bed skilled nursing facility in Ridgeway, South Carolina for $3.0 million. The company expects to complete the transaction in the current quarter and finance the acquisition with a traditional bank loan.

Management Commentary
"The six acquisitions of skilled nursing facilities since the year-ago quarter helped drive strong quarter-over-quarter growth in rental revenue," said Global Healthcare REIT's president and CEO, Christopher Brogdon. "Our acquisition campaign for healthcare real estate is currently focused on closing our recently announced agreement to acquire a skilled nursing facility in South Carolina, which would represent our first facility in the state. As we grow our portfolio of senior care facilities, we anticipate revenue and cash flow to increase as we maintain corporate overhead relatively flat."

Quarterly Dividend
The company paid a regular quarterly cash dividend in July in the amount of $0.01 per common share for the second quarter of 2015.

"We recently paid our fourth quarterly dividend and expect our dividend to grow over time with the growth in our healthcare facilities portfolio," commented Brogdon. "If we can execute on our acquisition campaign and debt refinancing plans, we could double the dividend in the first quarter of 2016."

Note Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Beginning with the reporting of results for the first quarter of 2015, the company began to report the measures of funds from operations (FFO) and FFO per share.

Funds from Operations (FFO), as defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT), and FFO per share are important non-GAAP supplemental measures of operating performance for a REIT. Because the historical cost accounting convention used for real estate assets requires straight-line depreciation except on land, such accounting presentation implies that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. However, since real estate values have historically risen or fallen with market and other conditions, presentations of operating results for a REIT that uses historical cost accounting for depreciation could be less informative. Thus, NAREIT created FFO as a supplemental measure of operating performance for REITs that excludes historical cost depreciation and amortization, among other items, from net income, as defined by GAAP.

FFO is defined by NAREIT as net income computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding gains or losses from real estate dispositions, real estate depreciation and amortization and impairment charges, and adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. The Company computes FFO in accordance with NAREIT's definition.
